Risk Management

NJDOT Senior Management has authorized several capital projects to begin a "pilot program" to determine the effectiveness of a formal Risk Management Process. These pilot projects shall utilize the guidance provided on the Risk Management process web page to implement the proposed NJDOT Risk Management Process.

 

Limited Scope Project Delivery Process Approach

The NJDOT, with concurrence from FHWA, has expanded the parameters of the Limited Scope Project Delivery Approach. In addition to the existing pavement resurfacing and bridge deck/superstructure replacement project types, project types include:
  • Drainage improvements
  • Simple culvert structural repairs
  • Median crossover improvements
  • Sign structure installations
  • Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) installations
  • Simple intersection improvements (minimal utility/right of way involvement)

Included in the expansion is the elimination of the Preliminary Engineering Phase for Limited Scope projects. A web page has been created to provide a central location for all Limited Scope guidance documents. The Limited Scope Project Delivery Approach web page, as well as the Project Delivery Process Project Customization Guideline (pdf 389k) provides current guidance regarding this latest expansion to the Limited Scope process.
